Arriving at the Facebook page for "Pets on Death Row" is heartbreaking. "I get the euth list every night from Animal Care & Control (AC&C) and post it on Facebook," says Kay Smith, a New York City animal activist who runs the page. "There are always so many cats -- 25 to 30 -- and if no one steps up, they all get killed the next day."
Smith's page is just one example of how social media is gradually transforming the process of rescuing and adopting animals. Her project is very local in that it only posts info about cats in New York City shelters.
